First I Second That Emotion

Source / Mastering Notes:
- There were multiple edits made for reel changes. Some were crossfaded and others were edited out.
- Cuts were during I Second That Emotion, In Dark Star, during the Jam at the end of GDTBFB and
in the beginning of Good Lovin'.
- There are many audible conversations between Ramrod and others between tunes.
Which may indicate that this is a monitor mix.
- A buzz is intermittent in the right channel that was reduced Steinberg Denoiser.
- Speed adjustments were made for the first set as the beginning portion was fast
and after the cut in I Second That Emotion was slow.

Subject: Good Stuff
There maybe only 2 Pigpen tunes but that Good Lovin' is a powerhouse. Aside from that my favourite here is the NFA>GDTRFB>NFA which is just incredible. A gorgeous but fairly short Dark Star as well. Outside of that, many of the performances were nothing special by 71 standards, especially the PITB which didn't really grab me. Overall a good show though and worth a listen.

Subject: Pig on Piano
That's Pigpen on the piano

and Pigpen on B-3.

He plays both in this show.

It's a good one all in all. Especially love the first "I Second That Emotion" -- crunchy guitar chords.

Subject: Ned Lagin on background piano?
I am not sure, but that could be Ned Lagin on occasional piano in the background..he'd begun a relationship with the band a year before, instigated by a letter he sent them, and appeared on "A.Beauty" as well, and he sat in on 2/18/71. Certain Dead books list him as meeting the band at M.I.T. or was it Worc. Poly. Tech, so it's very concievable he's stting in here on a Boston show..at any rate someone's playing VERY cautious piano in the background(see Playin)

Only two PigPen Tunes the whole night?! Perhaps he wasn't feeling well?
